LI: Lies About Zimmerman Trial Just Keep Coming

From my post over at Legal Insurrection: Today the South Florida Times posted on their web site a piece entitled “FILM USES VIRTUAL REALITY TO REENACT TRAYVON’S MURDER.” In that piece they describe a piece of fabricated (“virtual reality”) cinema that purports to tell the “true story” about the interaction between George Zimmerman and Trayvon …
